Bailey's Patent Steam Jack1793 America's first steam turbine This spit-turning device, or "jack," may well be the first steam turbine built and used in America. Used to turn a fireplace spit, it may also represent the earliest non-industrial application of steam power.
Hot-air cogeneration, which is found in modern combustion turbines, can be traced back to medieval smoke
Steam cogeneration was first applied to the steam jack, which appeared in the early seventeenth century.
By the late eighteenth century, waste steam from manufacturing processes was used to power steam engines, and the hot condenser water was used again for other process
a smoke jack, a device that took advantage of the rising heat in the flu to turn a vane, which in turn rotated the spit via a simple train of gears and a chain. Leonardo da Vinci illustrated a smoke jack in his sketchbook in the late 1400's.
Cogeneration solutions simply reduce waste, with only 10%-15% losses, compare that with the 55% or more using traditional generation methods and it is clear that cogeneration uses fuel more efficiently.
